Gardening, hiking, kayaking, farmers markets, and playing with our 17 grandchildren are my passions. We love the outdoors, snow covered mountains, wildflower filled meadows, enjoy eating at our neighborhood restaurants that prepare with locally grown foods. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing life's adventures.
